he article analyzes the topic of speaking in tongues, notably, the question: Can Christians speak in tongues in a church service without interpretation? In the first part, the article presents various views on glossolalia that exist among Christians. The second part introduces the problem of differences between glossolalia in 1 Corinthians and the book of Acts which is then followed by a textual analysis of key parts of 1 Corinthians and Acts. Based on the analysis, it is suggested that the best way to reconcile the differences about glossolalia between 1 Corinthians and Acts is to make a distinction between devotional and ministerial glossolalia. The third part of the article offers remarks and a summary of the topic with a conclusion that Christians can speak in tongues in a service, and not every speech in tongues needs to be interpreted.
